The Education and Culture Program aims to connect people and institutions; serve communities; strengthen local institutions; and enhance cross-cultural understanding and cooperation between the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Partners of the Americas does this through travel grants, small grants, and thematic workshops offered to its dedicated chapters.
